Kinnick Magic A No Show Vs Wisconsin

Ultimately, it was two big special team blunders and a long Badger drive that cost Iowa (3-1, 0-1 in Big Ten). Both were fumbles, the first one was knocked out of Kyle Groeneweg’s hands the second came courtesy of Shaun Beyer’s foot inadvertently grazing the ball before being recovered by the Badgers. It was the latter one that stung the most for the Hawkeyes as it set the Wisconsin … Continued

However, … Continued

The game looked to start off well for the Hawkeyes who forced a turnover on the first play of the game, but then quickly turned the ball over themselves. On … Continued
